Do you have motorcycle related news, we'd love to hear it, send
When our legislative session began we were there with the support from our members,and we were noticed by all.Even the Governor stopped by to say hello.
Since Connecticut had a pending Helmet Bill in committee,
we will have to be extra vigilant at our Statehouse for any Bills that are for Helmets.
As we go into Riding season we will all have to be extra careful with the distracted Drivers.Lets not forget the added construction and the deplorable road conditions in general in our state.
We had our Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet on 2/23/2019
and a good time was had by all. Thank you to everyone who attended, and helped with the preparation and the donations for the raffles.
With a special thanks to Ralph for the venue,Great food and service.
Our next meeting will be on 3/19/2019 7:00 pm.at SILVIOS restaurant 133 Greenville ave.Johnston R.I.
We at RIMA look forward to seeing everyone at the events this season.
RIDE SAFE RIDE FREE
The start of the Legislative session began on 1/01/2019 and Rima was there to welcome our friends back. Also to meet the new legislators and to let them know that we will be watching and ready to respond to any Bills that may concern us.
This year the Proclamation for May as MOTORCYCLE MONTH was voted on and approved.This will allow the electronic road signs to have messages geared towards motorcycle safety.
The only other issue to keep an eye on was held in committee for further study.House Bill 5464 Title is Motorcycle charity Rides.This bill would require a permit from Ridot for each charity ride. The bill has many other parts to it which may be why it was held at this time.
We will keep in touch with our friends at the state house for anything that may concern motorcycles.
As far as the helmet bill that was presented in Connecticut it was held in committee for further study.
